Tropical Storm Isaac Causing Flight Disruptions

Travellers in Antigua were left stranded at VC Bird International Airport while Tropical Storm Isaac bore down on the tropical island, causing the cancellation of flights into and out of the airport.  Many of those who were stuck at  the airport were still in transit, with Antigua being a stopover before boarding a LIAT flight to their final destination.  LIAT does not have a policy of providing overnight accommodations when flights are cancelled, causing anger among passengers.

 

One young woman on her way to St. Maarten had flown in on Birtish Airways and said it wasn’t fair.  She was told it is safety first, but it means about 500 people have to find a place to stay.  Another passenger said that people have been helpful in giving her numbers to call, and while the situation is no one’s fault, a lot of people will be out of pocket.  In addition, for those who are there for more than 24 hours, they have to pay the airport departure tax again.  However, at this point even government offices have closed down and people on the island are preparing for the storm.
